LeSean Kamel McCoy (born July 12, 1988) is an American football running back for the Buffalo Bills of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for the University of Pittsburgh, and was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft.
McCoy attended Bishop McDevitt High School in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania from 2002 to 2006. "McCoy enjoyed a heralded career at Harrisburg's Bishop McDevitt High School, where he went on to become one of the most prolific rushers in Pennsylvania history." His best years were his sophomore and junior year of high school. In his senior year of high school, McCoy suffered a major ankle injury, which threatened his career. This was one of the reasons McCoy decided to attend Milford Academy in New York after high school for one year.
In his first year at Pittsburgh in 2007, McCoy rushed for over 1,300 yards and recorded 14 touchdowns. In 2008, McCoy was selected as a second-team All-American. His 21 rushing touchdowns were third in the nation, only one behind the two leaders. McCoy made his NFL debut on September 13, 2009 against the Carolina Panthers. He rushed for 637 yards that year. In 2010, McCoy took over as the starting running back for the Eagles, and broke the 1,000 yard rushing barrier. In 2011, McCoy was named First team All-Pro by the Associated Press. In 2012, McCoy suffered a concussion that limited him to only twelve games. In 2013, McCoy led the NFL in rushing yards with 1,607 rushing yards as of week seventeen, shattering the team's individual rushing yards in a season record that stood for 34 years.
